If you’re looking at studying in Moscow, here’s a short guide to higher education options in Moscow.

If you are already live in Moscow, selecting a university or college education depends on your field of interest. Besides the system and quality of teaching, you must take into account financial support given to the national universities and research institutions by the government in your country of residence, including international scholarships.

Studying on exchange in Moscow

Students wishing to study abroad can take advantage of a student exchange program to go studying in Moscow. As well as educating the students in their field of study, these programs enable the expat students to learn a new language and culture.

Naturally, students need to carry out adequate research so they can be well-prepared for the university application process. But parents can also help. Read an expert’s advice to both students and parents on how to get through the stressful application process.

Studying part-time in Moscow

Higher education programs for expats and accompanying spouses can sharpen skills and improve self-esteem.

If you can’t find anything suitable within the country, you may also want to consider the option of distance learning. The Open University offers a variety of courses. Most of them are available as singular courses as well as in combination with other classes in a degree program. Students can choose the order, timing and type of courses they want, and can study online from anywhere in the world.
